Your home doesn’t need to be perfect!
Many of the seller’s I meet are nervous to invite me into their home over concerns that their home is not “enough” to get top dollar. Common complaints include that their home is neither clean nor renovated or staged enough to get top dollar.
I’ve been working with clients to get them top dollar on their homes for over a decade, and right now, nothing could be further from the truth. We are currently experiencing a historic shortage of homes for sale and because of this, buyers are more forgiving than ever when it comes to conditions.
Recently I worked with a wonderful seller who was concerned about putting her home on the market out of fear that the home was too dated. The home was 35 years old and mostly in original condition, but well maintained. The seller was right that the home did need updating, but often buyers see this as a blank canvas. The home was located on a quiet side street with lots of parking and an ultra private yard and it was these same attributes that drew my seller to the home those many years ago. They were also the same features that a young family were eager to adopt and put their own stamp on the home.
When it comes time to sell your home, it is easy to only see the things you don’t like about the place…. but your home attracted you in the first place, and there is a family out there waiting to call it their home.
